Book Short Summary:

John Carter, Civil War veteran, is attacked by murderous Apaches whilst prospecting for gold. Taking refuge in a strange cave in the Arizona hills he is transported to the planet Mars, and plunged headlong into the conflicts of a dying world. Upon the strange red soil of 'Barsoom' he must do all that he can to stay alive and uphold the values of his beloved Virginia. Given super strength and agility thanks to the lighter gravity, he soon becomes a renowned warrior among the barbarous green martians. But when a beautiful human Princess falls into their hands he will need more than just muscle power to help her escape. What follows is one of the greatest adventure stories of all time -- featuring vicious sword fights, daring midnight escapes, a passionate romance, and huge battles upon the dry ocean beds of Mars. As captivating as the day it was first published, A Princess of Mars went on to inspire everything from Superman to Star Wars, and remains one of the best examples of science fiction ever written.

Carthoris of Mars, prince of Helium, has inherited the strength and heroism of his Earth-born father, John Carter. Though he has fallen in love with Thuvia, princess of Ptarth, she has already been promised to Kulan Tith, Jeddak of Kaol. And on the planet of Barsoom—known to humans as Mars—only death can break an engagement. When Thuvia is kidnapped, Carthoris is blamed. But while rising tensions bring the red planet to the brink of war, it is Carthoris who flies to her rescue. In the untamed south of Barsoom, Carthoris pursues Thuvia’s captors into the ancient land of Lothar, home to a mysterious race of aliens with the ability to conjure phantom armies with their minds. Now Carthoris must fight a seemingly infinite number of enemies to save Barsoom from planetary war and win the love of Thuvia.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Pierce Brown’s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. “Red Rising ascends above a crowded dys­topian field.”—USA Today ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR—Entertainment Weekly, BuzzFeed, Shelf Awareness “I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says. “That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.” “I live for you,” I say sadly. Eo kisses my cheek. “Then you must live for more.” Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he toils willingly, trusting that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

Book Short Summary:

From the dime novels of the Civil War era to the pulp magazines of the early 20th century to modern paperbacks, lurid fiction has provided thrilling escapism for the masses. Cranking out formulaic stories of melodrama, crime and mild erotica--often by uncredited authors focused more on volume than quality--publishers realized high profits playing to low tastes. Estimates put pulp magazine circulation in the 1930s at 30 million monthly. This vast body of "disposable literature" has received little critical attention, in large part because much of it has been lost--the cheaply made books were either discarded after reading or soon disintegrated. Covering the history of pulp literature from 1850 through 1960, the author describes how sensational tales filled a public need and flowered during the evolving social conditions of the Industrial Revolution.

Book Short Summary:

This book is the definitive critical history of science fiction. The 2006 first edition of this work traced the development of the genre from Ancient Greece and the European Reformation through to the end of the 20th century. This new 2nd edition has been revised thoroughly and very significantly expanded. An all-new final chapter discusses 21st-century science fiction, and there is new material in every chapter: a wealth of new readings and original research. The author’s groundbreaking thesis that science fiction is born out of the 17th-century Reformation is here bolstered with a wide range of new supporting material and many hundreds of 17th- and 18th-century science fiction texts, some of which have never been discussed before. The account of 19th-century science fiction has been expanded, and the various chapters tracing the twentieth-century bring in more writing by women, and science fiction in other media including cinema, TV, comics, fan-culture and other modes.

Book Short Summary:

Deep in the savage African jungle, the baby Tarzan was raised by a fierce she-ape of the tribe of Kerchak. There he had to learn the secrets of the wild to survive - how to talk with animals, swing through the trees, and fight against the great predators. He grew to the strength and courage of his fellow apes. And in time, his human intelligence promised him the kingship of the tribe. He became truly Lord of the Jungle. Then men entered his jungle, bringing with them the wanton savagery of civilised greed and lust - and bringing also the first white woman Tarzan had ever seen. Now suddenly, Tarzan had to choose between two worlds. (First published 1912)
